Thank you in watercolor

When a loved one is buried a temporary marker is sometimes placed until the engraver has finished and delivered the forever one.  The first time I went to the national cemetery where my husband's cremains were interred you can imagine my dismay and horror that a word was misspelled.  He was my soul mate; but it was spelled 'soule mate'.  Somewhere somehow somebody goofed.  Big time. 

I wrote a note saying that it needed to be corrected as this was a dishonor to my husband and a blot on the cemetery.  Two weeks ago I returned to see if the niche marker had been corrected.  It was replaced and is now correct.  This is the card I sent to let them know I had seen the change.  It probably wasn't necessary but I felt it was the right thing to do.

The Art Impressions images (4605 Spring Basket and 4051 Foliage Set) were stamped on watercolor paper using Marvy markers (3, 15, 45, 48, 86).  Bazzill Piglet is the pink layer atop the white card.  The sentiment was stamped in Black Soot archival ink using a Jody Poesy stamp.
